"Good Place For A Hardware Store!"
A rather simple film about bank procedures here.
Frank Adams goes to the bank a lot to deposit money (he doesn't seem to take any out). We see what happens to his deposit (remember bank books?) and how the money is deposited in the bank. Then we see Frank Adams' real reason for saving his pennies. He wants to open a hardware store! After a riotous interview with the bank manager who knows a thing or two about location location location, he gets his hardware store, writes checks, and runs out of change. Wee.

a useful film
This film might serve two valuable functions...1.Are these banking practices primitive ,outmoded and superseded? An increasing number of people are thinking otherwise. In Austalia, many community banks have been established. We have seen the big banks depart from country towns and the towns facing economic death. Many small towns have established their community banks and the local businesses survive because residents bank and shop in their town 2 The film could serve as an introduction to a timely new documentary. The closure of the bank branches and reliance on computer related transactions , has produced a social disease..People no longer have access to trusted financial advice and turn to illinformed and often dishonest financial advisors..They have lost billions and often their lifesavings I have revised this review. My former 5 stars was too high Present raing is anacknowledgement of debt to the filmmaker
